How to get better at just dance

Beginner Tips For Just Dance 2022

By Tristan Jurkovich

Ubisoft's Just Dance 2022 is a whole lot of fun, but what are some tips players should keep in mind?

Just Dance 2022 is not a typical game from Ubisoft that can be mastered. There is no campaign to venture, or bosses to defeat. Just Dance 2022 is instead packed full of dances to help gamers have fun alone or with friends. It is one of the essential modern game series for parties.

Just Dance 2022 is fun for all ages but it can also be an intense workout. The main focus of the tips is to help get players situated before the dancing even begins. There are also a few things players should be aware of before checking out the game.

6/6 Limber Up And Get That Water Ready

It’s important to stretch before exercising be it if someone is going to player Just Dance 2022 or go hiking in the woods. Make sure to stretch afterward with a cooldown too. It may not sound like a “cool” thing to do, but don’t discount the warmup or cooldown. Doing so will lessen the chance of getting injured while working out.

It’s also a good idea to have plenty of water nearby along with a towel. Finally, make sure to clear space. Get all furniture out of the way and the higher the ceiling the better. If the player can help it, also make sure to dance on some sort of rug, yoga mat, or better yet, carpet. It can be quite easy to slip on a smooth surface like wood paneling or tile while dancing.

5/6 Don’t Just Follow The Controller’s Moves

Just Dance 2022 is only following one part of the body no matter if gamers are playing on the Switch with Joy-Cons or on an Xbox with full motion controls. That would be the right hand. It might be tempting to just follow the right controller’s prompts to get the best score but doing so will rob players of what this series is all about: having fun.

Get into the entire dance routine. Let that body sweat. Doing so will create an actual full workout. It may not gather many points in the game, but your body will certainly rack up the points. That’s the best high score a player can obtain: a ripped body.

4/6 How Multiplayer Works

Six people can team up in co-op gameplay. This multiplayer setup works even if a song is situated around a single dancer. When duos, trios, or quarters are involved, things get a little trickier.

There is also the World Dance Floor, an online versus mode. Players who jump in will compete with others in three randomly chosen consecutive songs. Points will be given out during the match and whoever dances the best, wins. It’s as simple as that. It would have been nice to see more customization with this mode, but it is interesting, to say the least.

3/6 Just Dance Unlimited Tips

The game only has about 40 songs on the disc/card, but there is also Just Dance Unlimited. This service collects over 700 songs from past entries in the series. There are various subscription methods players can buy online from days to months to years.

The prices are reasonable too. The nicest part is that Just Dance 2022 comes with a month-long trial. Since there are so many songs with the service, scrolling through them all to find a potential favorite could take forever since there is loading involved. That’s why it’s suggested to look up the databases on a phone or computer instead. There is also a search tab in the game.

2/6 Options To Be Aware Of

There aren’t that many options in Just Dance 2022. It would have been nice to see a way to turn off the vending machine's prompts. Players can skip past them but they, along with some other pop-ups, can ruin the flow of a good workout. There are three options in the game players should be aware of.

RELATED: Classic Signs Of An Ubisoft Game

First, turn on the Activate Beat Vibrations. This matters in the Switch version the most since the Joy-Cons have that HD Rumble feature. The vibrations can help players keep the beat while dancing. It’s another way to get into the groove just like the lyrics. However, if players don’t want the lyrics on screen, or the dance prompts, they can both be turned off. Turning off the pictographs can create a more challenging experience if players are looking for that.

1/6 Record Your Dance

This is a life hack that works for all entries in the series. If players have access to a game capture unit then they should record their dances. Then, on a computer, edit down the song so that it starts and stops without any filler. People can then play these recordings and work out however they want. For example, stick the songs onto a USB device and then play them on a PS4.

This eliminates any equipment involved as well as those pesky menus. There is no longer a score involved or in-game reward incentives but getting a solid workout will be reward enough for most. The choreography and background graphics are great in Just Dance 2022, but some intros and exits are a little long. It’s another thing that can hamper a good sweat. Do not use this method for parties though. This is strictly a tip for solo play.

Just Dance 2022 was released on November 4, 2021 and is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

Tips, Tricks, and Information! : JustDance

Hi everyone!

I'm sorry if this isn't the correct place, method, or format for this kind of thing, but I'd thought I'd share some of the knowledge I've gained about this game lurking across the community as well as my own 145+ hours playing the game.

Before I get into it, a few disclaimers:

  1. My knowledge of the game is limited to what I have read and personally witnessed. There's an almost certain chance I am wrong about something or that I missed something important. Please leave a comment when this happens and I'll update this post.

  2. I play on Switch using Joy-Cons, so that is the perspective I'm writing from. Most of the information here should still hold true on Kinect/PlayStation Camera, but I'll try to mark instances where it might not. Again, if you catch anything that might be inaccurate on your platform, please leave a comment.

  3. Some of the information in this post is based on my own speculation. I'll try to make it clear when that's the case.

  4. This post is about Just Dance 2021. Some, if not most, of this information should apply to the last couple of entries, however.

  5. I welcome any feedback or additional information so this can serve as a source of reference for future players. Let me know what can be improved!

With all of that out of the way, let's get started.


Disclaimer: This section is almost entirely speculation, as Ubisoft stubbornly refuses to tell us how scoring actually works. However, it is based on my own experiences as well as those of other users of this subreddit.

What is the maximum score possible?

The maxium score you can get as of JD2021 is 13333. In order to achieve this score, you must perfectly execute every move in the choreo.

What are the thresholds for each star?

The first 5 stars are each 2000 points apart, with each one after being 1000 points. Below is a table to illustrate this.

1 Star2000 Points
2 Stars4000 Points
3 Stars6000 Points
4 Stars8000 Points
5 Stars10000 Points
Superstar11000 Points
Megastar12000 Points
13k*13000 Points

* not an actual star, but still a fan-recognized threshold

How is each move scored?/I got all perfects, why did I not get 13333?

I really wish Ubisoft would come out and explain this one. The following information has been agreed upon by fans, and is probably how it works, but who knows, maybe Ubi will come out one day and tell us we're all wrong.

Anyways, you probably know about the 6 different feedback levels you can recieve, being X, OK, Good, Super, Perfect, and Yeah!. While it may seem like these all add a set amount to your score, that's not the case. Instead, think of them like letter grades. All you can see is the letter, but each grade has a range of percents that apply to it. Below is a table to illustrate this, and it might even be accurate, but it's best just to take it as an illustrative example. I've also included a description of each score.

XNo movement was detected.0%
OKMovement was detected, but it was either way too early or late, or was not the move that was expected.1%-40%
GoodYou were either too early, too late, or the move was not executed correctly. 40%-60%
SuperYou almost got it! You were either slightly to early or light, or were just slightly off of what the game expected. This isn't a bad score at all!60%-80%
PerfectYou executed the move with perfect timing and accuracy! Good job!80%-100%
Yeah!You must score what would otherwise be a good or better to score a gold move.40%-100%

Now, here's the important part: Your percent accuracy determines how many points you get from a move, not the feedback you were given. This is why you can get all perfects, and get a 13.2k, or why all perfects and 1 super can be better than all perfects. The way the game calculates this percent can seem very random at times but keeep at it and you'll get there eventually!

How do you know how many points each move is worth?

So, this is totally something I've observed on my own, so if it's not correct please let me know.

Each move in a song is worth the same number of points, with the exception being gold moves which are worth 5 times a normal move. This does make it kind of difficult to calculate the exact value for each move, but a good estimation is 13333 divided by the number of moves in the song. You can only see the number of moves in a song on the singleplayer results screen in JD2021, right under the bar that shows how many of each feedback level you got.

Learning Difficult Choreos

Learning extremes and even some hard choreos can be overwhelming! Don't worry, there is an easier way!

What I usually do when I decide on a new extreme to learn is first run through it normally, with a controller in my hand, just to see what score I get and to see what I need to work on. Some extremes are easier than they look, while others it seems like you have the whole song to work on! That's totally okay and normal! It takes practice to learn these, and so you move on to the next step.

I then will close the game and open up YouTube and try to find the choreo on there. Most, if not all, JD choreos are on there. I'll start by going through it once all the way through at 0.5x or 0.75x playback speed, and then I'll slow each section down individually until I'm comfortable with it. You'd be surprised at how much you can learn this way!

Note About YouTube: Ubisoft has started to ban full-screen gameplays of Just Dance. For newer songs, you may only be able to find videos with the game in a small window and somebody doing the dance alongside it. These videos are helpful in their own way, but may not be what your looking for. 

Since I play on Switch, another thing I'll do to get one down a bit better is put my controller down and just focus on trying to do exactly what the coach is doing. That way, since I'm not focused on getting a good score, I can just focus on all the little details of the movements. You'd be surprised how much you pick up on.

Getting Good

A common question/complaint/issue that I hear a lot from newer players and family members (and even myself sometimes) is that "I'm doing the moves, but it keeps giving me (OK/Good/Super)s!" Every player experiences this at some point or another, especially when playing on Switch. Usually, this is due to one of two reasons:

Reason #1a: The game's detection is really, really stupid sometimes (Joy-Cons)

If you play on Switch, you know exactly what I'm talking about when I say that the detection with the Joy-Cons is straight up mean. There are some moves that it straight up doesn't register, while some others it demands absolute perfection from. The best advice I can give in these situations is to try moving the controller a bit more or less. If you're getting Xs, that game straight up is registering your movements. In that case, you have to apply more force when moving your controller. Sure, you'll get an OK or a Good, but both of those are certainly better than an X.

Reason #1b: The camera's detection is really, really stupid sometimes (Kinect/PS Camera)

Now, I can't speak for this very well as I don't have any first hand experience on these platforms, however I have watched quite a few streams of people playing on them as well as lurked on this sub for quite a while. From that, I've gathered a few tips for when your camera is losing track of you.

Make sure your room is well lit. Your TV alone probably can't provide enough light for it to keep track of you very well, so make sure you have some other source of lighting. I think natural light is better, but I'm not sure.

Try raising or lowering the position of your camera to ensure it can easily see your whole body.

Apparently, certain types of clothes can cause parts of your body to be completely invisible to the camera. Not sure why this occurs but if you are having problems, this might be the case.

If anybody who plays on this platform has any more tips, let me know.

Reason #2a: You might not be doing as well as you think you are (in general) (more likely)

Now, we can complain about the game's detection all day long, but the reality of it is that the game is probably not the problem.

It can be easy to feel like you're doing a move correctly, but you're actually not. It can be helpful to record yourself dancing, or dance in a mirror and try to catch what you're doing wrong. If you have somebody who is willing, it might also be helpful to have somebody else observe you dancing and have them provide feedback.

It can also be pretty easy to zone out while dancing, and that's when, at least for me, mistakes start to happen. Try your best to stay focused on the coach and mirroring their movements.

Sometimes, I also catch myself dancing faster than the coaches. I'm not sure why this happens, but it does tend to happen more on songs I'm more familliar with. Again, stay focused on your coach and try to match them just like a mirror.

Reason #2b: You might not be doing as well as you think you are (relating to Joy-Cons) (more likely)

So I know something every single Switch player ends up doing, especially when they are more of a beginner at the game, is trying to trick the game. You may not even conciously realize that you're doing it, but the game absolutely will notice and dock points for it.

The solution? Well, it's the one the game reminds you of time and time again. It's in the title! Just Dance! Sometimes, you can get so caught up in trying to get a good score that you end up only focusing on the hand the controller is in and straight up ignoring some moves that you don't think it will detect. I like to pretend that the controller just isn't there and that the game can see my entire body. I focus on making sure I am actually dancing and doing the whole choreo, even moves I think it won't be able to detect. Besides scoring, it's just more fun to play this way, so next time you play, I encourage you to give this tip a shot.

Some Things of Note

Here is a collection of additional important tips pointed out in the comments section below.

Sort by: Pertinence

According to user u/Mr_Gold_Move, in PAL regions (like Europe) have a seperate sorting method called "Pertinence" that, like Catalog, seperates by JD2021, JDU, and Kids. Unlike Catalog, however, it seems to sort by songs you haven't played first, including ones you haven't unlocked. Good to be aware of.

Song Difficulties

...suck. They just do. Nobody agrees on what any of them should be but everybody agrees that most of them are wrong. They make a good starting point, but its good to just try a variety of different songs and decide for yourself.


I think that just about wraps up everything I know about the game. It's unlikely that I covered everything important and that I made zero mistakes. If you catch any mistakes or have any additional tips or knowledge you'd like to add, please do let me know in a comment. I'm happy to fix any mistakes.

I hope this guide proves useful! Let me know if you try these tips out and if they were helpful!

90,000 12 life hacks, to quickly learn how to dance from Mamita Dance


Author: Pavel Gather
Psychologist, Lecturer Salsa and Tango


Author: Pavel Pavel
Psychologist, Lecturer Salsa

on At the start, you always want to get a quick result. When it doesn't happen, the hypothesis arises that everything takes time. After a conditionally acceptable time, humility comes to mastering pair dances, which, perhaps, is not given, and I will just do what I learned somehow. nine0003

This is the most common story of those who believe that the mere act of attending a pair dance class is enough to learn how to dance.
Absolutely not. If you want to really dance well, you have to make an effort outside of the dance class. A good teacher will definitely be needed, but the initiative should be on your side.

1. Listen to music

The most common and accessible advice that is given already in the first lessons. And it definitely works. Music creates a certain atmosphere of the dance and intuitively you want to move to it. It doesn't matter where you listen to music - in the car, on headphones while walking or doing household chores. nine0003

An addition that will help you dance better is your active participation in the music. Sing along, dance or simply beat musical accents with any free parts of the body. In the subway, for example, it is enough to tap out bright moments with your fingers, in the car to sing along with sounds, and at home you can jump for pleasure.

2. Watch videos of good dancers

It's complicated, but also obvious. It’s more difficult, because without recommendations from more experienced dancers, unfortunately, it’s not so easy to find a good quality video on the net (I mean not the resolution quality, but the content itself). nine0003

Meaningful video viewing is about building an understanding of HOW dancers make a particular impression on a partner or viewer. Technology is at the heart of everything. Understanding how the pros do it is a big step forward.

It is important to distinguish a show from a disco dance, a staged performance from an improvisation, a stylized dance from an authentic one, etc. Ask for recommendations and dance teachers will always throw off a couple of videos of worthy landmarks. nine0007

3. Dance in salsatecas/milongas/discotheques

A very delicate moment when it is worth coming to the first party. From a technical point of view, most students in 1-3 months have a sufficient set of figures and techniques to come and dance calmly. Psychologically, the same moment can be stretched out for an indefinite time. After all, it is imperative to “not lose face”, “learn more figures” and be sure what to do in case “there is an unfamiliar movement”. nine0003

In fact, the partygoers don't really care (except for a small layer of non-professional teachers who want to help inexperienced dancers by treating them as customers in the future). It is important to come and try dancing after a month of classes. You can only with friends or guys from your group. This will be enough to feel the adrenaline and inspiration from the dance.

4. Dance with partners or partners not of your level

The conventional wisdom that you need to practice in groups of your level does not withstand the test of experience. Perhaps now your eyes widened in surprise, and you want to meaningfully read the phrase again. Yes, you saw everything correctly: when you dance with a partner of your level, you don’t grow anywhere. nine0003

It's important to understand that not only does it work one way and you have to dance with cooler dancers, but it works even more effectively the other way. It is no coincidence that teaching pair dances dramatically raises the level of the teacher himself. You have an endless stream of very beginner dancers.

How it works. A more experienced partner needs to be "stretched". It's easy and obvious. With beginners, you need to take more initiative on yourself, see the general pattern of the dance more widely, turn on and insure more, try to be an example and be more careful. The quality of interaction begins to grow significantly. And wonderful partners too. nine0003

Dancing with partners of your level doesn't make you grow. Dance with both beginners and more advanced dancers

5. Learn to dance for a partner and for a partner

Turks and Argentines are one of the best partners in the world. In Russia, partners are highly valued. Why? The answer is simple. In Argentina and Turkey, it is not questionable for men to ask another man to lead in one piece or another and give feedback on the quality of the lead. For them, it will be a great shame to hear moralizing from a partner, or even more so to be known in the community as an insecure partner. nine0003

In Russia, due to the constant, often far-fetched, opinion that there are more women in pair dances, partners calmly get up and study their partner's part. Such partners then grow into very cool dancers and teachers. In no case do this at parties, only in class. Here we are talking only about the learning strategy. At parties, be yourself.

6. Do not memorize the links

Always try to look deeper and understand the through principle and idea of ​​movement. Understanding what and how is done will make it possible to independently generate any sequences and chips. nine0003

Human memory is limited and there will always be a moment when something will escape and your repertoire will be limited by the size of RAM.

In Argentine tango, for example, there are seven levels of movement construction that, when mastered, will allow you to make millions of combinations. And how many dance sequences can you really remember? In rueda, more than 150 figures dance in a rare circle. It's hard to keep more in mind.

7. Develop your body

Many years of experience in teaching couple dance shows that as soon as everyone pairs up in a class, any progress in individual style ends. But it is the individual style that distinguishes everyone at the disco: partners change, and style is always with you. nine0003

The body as the main instrument of dance must be very plastic, responsive and emotional. Surprisingly, not all pair dance schools have a general physical warm-up. It is vital to tune the body and understand how it works.

You can always train extra and concentrate more on the basic steps, as their true value is as body work. The sequence of steps is, in fact, the simplest thing that can be in pair dancing. The quality of individual performance determines the craftsmanship. nine0003

8. Try on the images of inspiring dancers

A psychological life hack for those who have already mastered the steps, but still feel that there is not enough brightness and drive. Most are terribly afraid of being someone else's "clone". Here the action is the same as under the influence of hypnosis - the more you resist, the more you plunge into an altered state of consciousness.

With a high degree of probability, you are already dancing like someone else's "clone". A meaningful fitting of someone else's image is that you mentally take the image of the one who inspires you (inspiration is critical in this case) and "put on" yourself. Then you start dancing and trying to feel in general how it is to be able, for example, to be the best partner or the sexiest partner in a disco. This is much more difficult than it seems. But it works extremely efficiently. nine0003

9. Dance to offbeat music

Habitual rhythms keep you tight. Tango salon or speedy timba leave little room for experimentation and fantasy. Pattern dancing is always noticeable and is reserved for beginners.

The truly new is born outside of the usual. Look for places to experiment. If there is no place, organize self-training. The main thing is not to get carried away, because music determines the style. We bring something new to pair dances, rather than trying to change them. nine0007

Search, improvise, don’t be afraid to go beyond, develop in different directions, be inspired by music atypical for the style

10. Try your hand at basic dance directions

dances exist according to their own non-choreographic laws.

This is the deepest delusion, which has turned into a ceiling for the qualitative development of partner dances. After all, all professional dancers, for example, in salsa or bachata, build their ideas on the basic choreographic principles. nine0003

Do not think that choreography is only applicable on stage. Any meaningful movement of the body can be choreographic. In general, try classical or modern choreography. Basically, hip-hop can work too.

11. Look for battle sensations

Pair dances return us to an active position of manifestation of our body. As in the days of our ancient ancestors, we impress the members of the opposite sex by how dexterous, hardy, sexy, etc. we are. Modern laws of the jungle in the entourage of large cities. nine0003

If you look around the dance floor, it becomes clear that the majority are clearly herbivores (not in the sense of vegetarians, but in relation to those around them). I am sure that predators are always more interesting in terms of the attractiveness of the image - try to find a counterbalance among herbivores, for example, a cat woman or a lion man.

The conversation is about an internal position, not about aggressiveness. Lability and lack of control are inherent in adolescents, and not in adult self-sufficient people.

Accordingly, even a training or friendly battle gives, on the one hand, practical skills - to make a bright sequence of movements, bring an idea to a climax, show a spectacular feature, on the other hand, develops the psychological basis of the dance - self-confidence, resistance to extraneous attention, self-control and self-control in complex elements. nine0007

12. Communicate with professionals

The environment shapes the internal position. Basically, real passionaries of the dance community are ready to openly talk, discuss and support the development of dance in every possible way. Universal principles and the ideas they articulate have a much longer and more practical perspective than meets the eye.

Accept that, for example, behind the words "listen to your partner" is not only a beautiful metaphor, but also a practical skill to literally listen to your partner. At the same time, always treat every thought, even the most respected teacher, as a private opinion. nine0003

Your skill will lie in finding the scope of the idea even in conflicting opinions. Most often, the contradiction is speculative and the truth lies in the angle of perception or situationality.

Your dancing growth will stop sooner or later. This can happen at the level of three basic steps or years of experience in teaching and show performances. Regardless of your level, the suggested 12 life hacks can get you off the ground and greatly accelerate your dance growth. There is no way here without your motivation and activity.

7 tips for those who want to learn how to dance

September 9, 2020 Reno5 A life

Dancing is a great way to make friends with your body and gain self-confidence. And yes, they can be mastered at any age. nine0003

1. Choose your style

The idea here is the same as for sports: if you secretly hate yoga or iron exercises, you are unlikely to go to workouts week after week. To achieve noticeable progress in dancing, a beginner will have to practice a lot and regularly, so it’s better not to torture yourself and choose a direction that really ignites.

You can focus on the music that you like - you need to catch the drive from movements to it. It is music that forms the style of dance and its energy, so decide what is closer to you: for example, funk lovers should try popping or locking, folk fans may like Irish dancing, and if you respect jazz, swing and everything like that, take a closer look at lindy hop. nine0003

Another criterion is the nature of the movements. Some are closer to dynamic, as in hip-hop, others are smooth and sensual - for this in tango. There are also health restrictions to consider. So, twerk is not suitable if there are problems with the lumbar spine, with sore knees it is better not to get involved in shuffle, and it will be difficult for an aged person to master house.

2. Set a goal

Photo: Iakov Filimonov / Shutterstock

You can start dancing at any age, but it's important to keep in mind why you started it in the first place. It is perhaps too bold to expect that in half a year of classes it will be possible to reach the level of international dance championships from scratch. But if you want to try dancing in order to develop plasticity and learn to feel the body better, great, go ahead. nine0003

Don't expect to get it right the first time. When you learn from scratch, difficulties are absolutely normal, the main thing is not to score in classes. Over time, both the correct posture and a beautiful gait will be developed, and as a bonus you will also get self-confidence - with freedom of movement, freedom from complexes will come.

3. Don't give up on sports

Some dances in themselves make for a good workout. A vigorous shuffle will replace cardio, and a break can give a load to almost all muscle groups. And yet, without preparation, it will not be easy. A more or less good stretch is needed in any type of dance, and, for example, strong arms and strong abdominal and back muscles are also useful for pole dancing. You can combine dancing with strength exercises, but you need to give the body time to recover and not plan classes in a row, but allocate at least a day of rest between them. nine0003

And don't forget to warm up before dancing. So that the training does not end with an injury, the muscles and joints need to be prepared for the load. You can allocate 10–15 minutes for a warm-up, it should include simple articular gymnastics (at least elementary rotational movements of the shoulders and knees), tilts and dynamic stretching.

4. Take some lessons from a trainer

Especially if you have never danced before. Those with experience can learn new styles at home with video tutorials, but that's because they already know how to control their bodies. Beginners are unlikely to succeed, but disappointment in themselves and demotivation are guaranteed - if you can’t repeat elementary movements, then there’s no point in doing it. nine0003

Nothing really strange here. Without preparation, it is difficult to just take it and start moving freely. At least the basic elements are better to master under the guidance of a pro, and when you feel that you are coping, supplement these lessons with home workouts.

5. Learn something new in every class

When you repeat the same set of exercises and movements over and over again, classes turn into a good way to pass your free time, only you can forget about progress. Acquaintance with new elements is the same mandatory part of any workout as a warm-up. It doesn't matter if you work with a mentor or on your own. nine0003

Do not immediately try to copy cool dancers. First, study the basic movements, then try to combine them into bundles until you hone them to automatism, and then experiment and improvise, creating something new based on familiar elements.

6. Record yourself on video

You don't need to record the whole workout from the warm-up on, it's enough to record only those moments with which you have problems. These can be separate movements or bundles that are not given in any way. Review the video and, if possible, objectively assess what is wrong: perhaps there are technical problems that are difficult to notice in the process. When you understand what's wrong, try to repeat the movement and record it on video again - and so on until you achieve a good result. nine0003

This approach will help you find errors and track progress. You can not even limit yourself to memorized ligaments, but improvise - then see how it looks from the outside.

7. Find like-minded people

Photo: Iakov Filimonov / Shutterstock

If you need an extra reason not to miss classes, then meeting new people can be a good motivation. It is easier here for those who train in a group. Often the dance school becomes the center of a close-knit community, where people come not only for the sake of classes, but also just to spend time together at dance parties. nine0003

Finally, the more partners around, the more experience. Do not limit yourself to dancers of your level of training and practice with those who are stronger or weaker than you.
